Using TBB for non open source software

I had read through GPL, but I am still not clear on the issue that whether or not non-GPL software can dynamically link to GPL librarby.

Is it legal to develop windows non-open source application which dynamically link to TBB?

I don't work for Intel, and I'm certainly not qualified to give you legal advice, but on this page:
http://osstbb.intel.com/
there is a link to an explanation of the "runtime exception" to the GPL for this library. That page contains some explanatory text that may answer your questions.

Hope this helps,
